2012 Quadrantid Meteor

Here are some Quadrantid meteors from this past evening 01-04-2012. I captured my First Quadrantid for the year 2012 via my Canon Rebel Xsi DSLR & 8mm lens from my backyard in Dayton, Ohio. Despite the bright Gibbous Moon & City lights, I did manage to nab a few before the clouds rolled in on me at 3:00am.


This is the original fisheye shot (which shows the Moon & Pleiades in the trees)


The meteor is above the Basketball Hoop…


This is a 30 second exposure @ ISO 400, and the 8mm lens was set to F6.
